...Trying windows image to copy the HD to the SSD now...
second bay is empty with a bracket put a Samsung EVO 840 250gig in it
I have a ASUS ROG G751 Series G751JT-CH71 on order and it should arrive tomorrow. I looked through the forms on updating the HDDs. The one I ordered is from New Egg and has the 1TB HDD. I'd like to use that as my data storage and install an SSD as my OS drive. From the forums I read that the G751 comes in 2 flavors of SSD SATA and PCI-E.
With the one I ordered am I able to install a M.2 PCI-E SSD as my OS HDD and use the 1TB SATA drive (which comes with it) as my 😧 drive?
I'm a little confused about this quote: "Please purchase a model with “SSD PCIE” listed, otherwise the M.2 bracket cannot be provided for aft..." As this is not listed anywhere in the specs when you purchase it.
I have to admit the wording leaves me unclear as to what they are trying to say. What is the M.2 bracket? Can it be purchased as an after market item? Is it used to run multiple PCI-E HDDs? Or is it needed to just run 1 like I want to? With the version I bought, can I only run SATA HDDs?
I contacted New Egg and they don't know and charge a 25% restocking fee if you open the box to find out.
Hi, I purchased the SSD Samsung 840 EVO 500gig and removed the 1TB HDD (secondary Drive of course). Only to find out that my SSD can not fully perform as the SATA port connected to is a 3Gb/s not 6Gb/s. Now what?? I can not connect to the primary SATA port as my 250 Gb 2m drive is in the way??? Any suggestions will be appreciated
